So today it is World Nutella Day 2020 and I wanted to share with you my Healthy Nutella recipe that I make.
So I remember trying Nutella at an early age when I was on a French exchange. The family I stayed with would give it to us for Breakfast and we would spread it thickly on English and French bread. Now I know better and I also know how bad it really is for you. I was searching for ideas for a recipe that was decent. This one isn’t as sweet as the one you’ll find in the shop, but is low in Sugar. It has no Fructose in it, which makes it so much more healthy.
1 cup hazelnuts.
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk.
1 ½ tablespoon rice malt syrup.
1 tablespoon coconut oil.
1/4 cup raw cacao powder.
1 tablespoon vanilla Paste.
oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4.
2. Bake the hazelnuts for 8–10 minutes, until browned. Rub most of the skins off as they can be a bit bitter (you don’t have to be too precise). Grind the nuts in a food processor until smooth.
3. Add the remaining ingredients and process until well mixed. Add extra coconut milk if you want more of a ‘sauce’ consistency. Store in the fridge for several weeks.
Macadamia oil also works well instead of coconut oil
Sugar-free means fructose-free here, as this recipe contains rice malt syrup. I advise eating sweet foods like this one as occasional treats only.
